Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Brain Worm is a trinket added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Tears snap 90 degrees to target enemies that they may have missed.

Notes[ | ]

  • The effect will not work if Isaac is too close to enemies.
  • The effect will only work if the tear has a line of sight to the enemy: if it's interrupted by an obstacle, Brain Worm won't work even if Isaac has enough tear height to otherwise clear it unless he also possesses spectral tears.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Brain Worm originates from the Antibirth mod.
  • The name, appearance and effect of the trinket are likely inspired by the BrainBrain enemy.
  • The trinket might be a reference to Parelaphostrongylus tenuis, a real life brain worm commonly found in white-tailed deer.
